MARK 300 Portable Reel Tape Cleaner (Rental)

MARK 300 Portable Reel Tape Cleaner (Rental)

The MARK 300 Portable Reel Tape Cleaner was specifically designed to meet the needs of the computer user. The compact, table-top, easy to use MARK 300 fits in a small space and is ideal for most tape libraries. It accommodates 1/2" tape reel sized up to 10 1/2" diameter and offers self-diagnostic electronics.

The microprocessor-controlled MARK 300 uses proven Data Devices technology, including a non-magnetic vacuum grid cleaning, patented quick-release hub and fully automatic two-pass cleaning.

A specially designed arm packs the tape so it does not touch either reel flange. This anti-skew device protects tape edges, providing longer tape life, and helps prevent loss of data recorded on the outer edges of the tape.

The Mark 300 is only available as a completely remanufactured machine, with new machine warranty, at a cost of $1,995.00. It may also be rented for $400.00 per month plus shipping costs, and the machine carries a new machine warranty. The voltage on this machine is either 115 VAC; 60 Hz.
